Minn Kota® Riptide ST Bow-mount Saltwater Trolling Motor with Co-PilotTM.

You also get unequaled corrosion protection, plus battery-maximizing, power-conserving Digital MaximizationTM. It all comes powered by a beefy Weedless Wedge 2TM prop, and backed by Minn Kota's famous cool, quiet power. Take your pick of 55- (RT55), 80- (RT80), or 101-thrust power (RT101)... see the chart below for more details on the features and choices available.

Even more: Check out all the ways Co-Pilot can help you nab more fish:
  • Advanced Autopilot- simply point in the direction you want to go, keeps you on a GPS-perfect course while compensating for drift and wind
  • Copilot- control speed, steering, on / off, and high-speed bypass, all right from your remote! Frees you up to fish anywhere on the boat.
Minn Kota's famous cool, quiet power:

Larger brushes, windings and commutators generate less heat, less noise and run cooler-- extending motor life and conserving battery power. You get greater sustained thrust and more time on the water. A unique bearing system produces low rpms / high torque to cut down on fish-spooking noise-- so quiet they'll never hear you coming.

Digital MaximizerTM: Instead of wasting energy with a constant flow of power, Digital Maximizer delivers only what's needed... a precise amount of power at any setting, along with variable speed control. The bottom line is more time on the water for you.


Constantly repositioning and readjusting your boat wastes valuable fishing time. That's why the patented Autopilot does the navigating for you! Lock Autopilot onto your desired heading, and it will automatically and continuously make adjustments to keep your boat moving in the right direction. Available on select models (see chart below).

Indestructible Composite Shaft:

Guaranteed by Minn Kota for life! Pound for pound, it's stronger than steel. Shaft flexes on impact and won't break, kink, or corrode.

Weedless WedgeTM 2 Prop:

Only Minn Kota's Weedless Wedge 2 Prop can push weeds away and take on the thick stuff without battery-draining chopping and hacking. They've improved the legendary design with swept-back, flared blades for unrelenting, reliable prop performance.

Innovative Stow and Deploy:

Easy in, easy out! That's the thinking behind the new mechanism. Balanced motor design makes stowing easy, and a master cut-off switch automatically turns off the power when stowed.
